Thank you for bringing this issue to attention as it is imperative to address it asap...although this can also be due to a way of getting attention, teasing siblings, and shock therapy ( to parents ) are commonly used. Regular discussions with your children one on one is an excellent way to discovering how and why they interpret and react as they do.
Evidently you hit a nerve on this one...thus the feedback you rec'd...good write...

Lol I thought that, my son is ADHD with ASD traits (being assessed for the latter) and he's been bullied through school by children who are true bullies because he sticks out like a sore thumb.

This list applies to boys and girls. This is not unique to boys. The only difference I would say is in the acceptance of aggressive behaviour. I have seen so many parents accept their sons behavior as "boys will be boys:" rather than blatant aggressive behaviour. Tackling, wrestling and general very tactical behavior is not acceptable and should not be encouraged as boy behavior.
